Wii games for $50?

Wii games could retail for $50 according to electronic super store Best Buy.

Three games - Red Steel, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Mario Galaxy - are listed in the Wii section of the Best Buy website, each with the release date of December 1, 2006, and a price tag of $50.

As Nintendo is yet to make an official statement on the price of software for its next console, this is undoubtedly a placeholder set by Best Buy, but it does make for a good rough estimate from the experienced retailer.

With games at $50, a console at $250 and downloadable content (old and new) in a full range of prices, Wii's chances of making a splash this holiday season are looking good.
